    6. Not totally awful, but it definitely could have been better. I can’t believe I missed the Harry Potter one. I kept thinking Godric’s damn sword was one of them.

    Mildly interesting side note: In my quest to find out more about my Dad’s side of the family I discovered we’re (distantly) related to the Winchesters of rifle-and-maze-house fame.
